Oh what a month.
I was in a bad reading slump. No idea why. I did finished two out of the three books from my April TBR but the third one was just tough. I think I just wasn’t in the mood for that particular story and because I’m so bad at DNFing or even just pausing books, it took me a while to get on with my April TBR.
Where’d You Go, Bernadette (by Maria Semple)
My Goodreads rating: 2.25 out of 5
I was really excited to read this book but it left me a bit disappointed. The pacing was one of the biggest issues for me. However, I don’t hate it. This just might be the wrong medium for this story.

Brief Answers to the Big Questions (by Stephen Hawking)
My Goodreads rating: 5 out of 5
I thoroughly enjoyed this. Maybe even more than I thought I would. I love learning new things and broadening my horizon, which I definitely did with this book, but I did not count on Hawking’s dry wit and sense of humour to shine through like they did. I would recommend this book to anyone, and I am sure you will take away much more from it than you expect. Even if you aren’t scientist.
I don’t think I will be writing a full review as I view this short paragraph as enough. I highly recommend this book. (If you’d like to read a longer review anyway, I wholeheartedly agree with this one here.)
I don’t know when I will continue The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle (by Stuart Turton), maybe this month, maybe next. I am still writing a May TBR, but I’m giving myself some freedom with that book.
What books did you read this month? Have you read any of these?
